Peter Kunhardt & Ken Hughes – “Nixon by Nixon: In His Own Words”


Peter Kunhardt


On Aug. 8, 1974, President Richard M. Nixon, irreparably tainted by the Watergate scandal, announced his resignation. He fought until his death 20 years later against the release of thousands of hours of secret White House tapes. The contents of those tapes are the subject of a new HBO documentary, “Nixon by Nixon: In His Own Words”. The film’s director, Peter Kunhardt, and Ken Hughes, a researcher at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center Presidential Recordings Program, join us.
